Well been half offline for a week.
Wow has been great.

Kid got married on Friday.
Turns out I look a lot like my dad, and I’m adopted. (And looking old too. Sheesh)


The boys arrival.

Mamma and I delivering.

Brides mom and dad.

The happy couple.

Has been a long week. My big livers’ little liver has now recovered. I don’t really drink anymore so was a long three days. Lol. The hernia hated all the food and laughing. Doing good now though.

Found out today I have a hernia. Belly button about 5-6” tear. Not good news for me.
Doc is hoping I can slow down enough to heal without surgery.
I hope I can.
Out for my sons wedding tomorrow, and I’m not used to doing nothing, gonna be a long haul.

Walleye delicious.
Pike all bones. Pike great fighters.
Spring pike I’ll eat but after water temp hits 60* or so they get all slimy and ‘soft’.
Walleye good all the time and have about only rib bones to remove.

Solar doing great. I think I’m at 12-15 gallons since March of 2017 in the generator.
I am debating more capacity for winter though.

The lake is full of walley, northern pike, and lesser amounts of whitefish.
The odd lake sturgeon and some carp/drum etc.

Fishing good at best not great, but when it’s a one minute ride to the spot who cares.

Got dock moved last night. Still ice bergs here and there.

I’ve got a good sized rock to move one way or another. Right under my first float. Explains why the bottom came out last fall. Dock is 18” west of where it should be until I get the rock moved. Hammer drill anchor and 4:1 come to mind. Coupled to a 3500# winch something will move.

Regardless summer has officially begun for us.

It’s a cheap old welder I picked up at Princess Auto, our version of Harbor Freight.
Brand is Deca, have no idea either. It was cheap I didn’t have a surplus, and had worked great for almost 20 years now. 230 volt unit only (not borrowable to most. Was a must for me) will do gas no gas and +\- to the gun.
Generator came from Costco in 2005. It’s a Coleman 6850 watt unit with a 13 hp Honda motor. Hard on gas but will run 3 campers at once, air conditioning in mine to boot. Lol.
It’s big issue for me is 250-280 pounds. With a bad back it can be a bit much to lift.

Seems like only a few weeks ago I was hauling dirt over the ice with the quad.
Made the first trip in the boat this morning.
No major icebergs seen, they are around still.
Picked big generator and welder up.
Fixed broken bits on dock. 
Now I wait for a calmer day to push the dock across.
20 gusting to 30 mph waves are a bit large for a dock move.

That’s funny.
I know one about drunk driving maybe I’ll post one day.

Looking good Ken.
I agree with TRN’s version.

Only 4am to 9 pm. I’ll take it. That’s like seven hours of dark.

We’re at about four and a bit hours now and will get to mere moments in a couple weeks.

Well stuffed the garlic rings and pepperonis.
And into the smoker.





It’s a small unit...not.


I’ve smoked 150# of garlic in one go in it. Too much that was.

Since I’m going to have the smoker running with some brisket I figured I’ll go at some sausage too. Don’t worry boys I have two sides to my smoker. The brisket will be alone and safe.

Mixed up 15 lbs of medium pepperoni and 32 lbs of garlic. I make all my own spice mix from the jar not pre made cabelas or whatever spice mixes.

Here is the spice tub for 15 lbs.


I’m running a mixed load. Moose 10#, deer 17#, topped up with a freezer burnt flat my dad was going to toss for about 4#, and pork to make 47# total.



Here it is. Heading to the fridge to cure for a few days.



I use pickle cure for my sodium nitrate and my recipes are built for the salt nitrate mix.



With it I mix 6:1 with pickling salt, then 11 tablespoons of that mix per 20 lbs of meat.

Going to be a long Saturday...or Sunday...or both.
Will stuff the garlic sausage right before the smoker. The pepperettes are a real pain and I might do them tomorrow or Friday if I find time.
And if I can find my 2” casing I may do a pepperoni also.

I have a buddy with a mill.
He said same as Don, except one year per inch thickness for oak.
I’d slab it in around 2 inches. Heck of a lot of board feet there.
And it looked like a really healthy tree.

If the loader can’t lift it...there are ways...

Do you have a “sawmill” bar attachment Charles?
An oak like that will have some nice wood in it if you are inclined to oak.
Also makes some great wood fire steaks too.

Been there before Charles. I have a 4-5' deep burn pit in the back yard. All I had was a gallon of white gas, a propane torch, a couple dead Christmas trees, and 4 semi drunk buddies around the perimeter of said hole. I'm no longer allowed to start camp fires.
Recipe for a hold my beer moment there.

Don, put the foundation in this year. Next year frame it and get it enclosed. Third year complete it.....

Do the majority yourself and sub out what you don’t want to do. Maybe take a couple years to finish inside, what does it matter?

I think the steps are ok in the fairer climates.
Everyone I know that HAD them hated them.
Between mud and ice or a combination of both they stuck down up or somewhere between.

So depending on your AO there is that tidbit.
When they worked they loved them.

I don’t know if my logic is sound but I don’t like the loading of the bags occurring aft of the center.
The physics of it are above me but my gut doesn’t like it.
It will load the aft half of the spring significantly more that the front half.
The axle in the center twisting with the load centered behind the axle rotation is my issue.

Someone smarter than me might be able to physics it, I just don’t like the placement.

I’d like the bags above the axle, the panhard could be moved aft and sway bar where there is space left.

I hate to agree with Shawn but I think he’s right.
Bags need to be centered.
Trackbar/panhard only need a perpendicular path to frame.

I’d move bar and centre bags too.

So it was a sunny day. Smoked wings. They were delicious.
The sauna was still warm this morning so I threw a couple more sticks at the stove.

That is 185* F. It was closing on 95C 200*F when I went in for a sweat. Only lasted about 7 minutes. Too hot.

Well they’re done!
Don’t have a clue what rub I used. Wasn’t for wings originally according to its flavour but it’s delicious.



Hints of cayenne, garlic, paprika, and some undetermined others. Added hickory smoke and it’s pretty dang tasty. Will get some hot sauce later on.

Got some wings in the smoker.



Some sort of rub I found on the interwebz.
Just an el cheapo masterbuilt that I learned today goes to at least 275 which is handy to caramelize and render the fats out.

More to follow in a couple hours.

Jon that’s tough. I wish all of you affected the best.

Me, it’s about 15* today. Really nice. Yeah yeah. But it is.

Maiden voyage for the new sled. Worked like a champ for its first four miles...

I’m also beat all to snot from the 500 odd mile ride for the dog race, and have the sauna heating up.
I’m at 140* now goal of 180*.


My bad back is screaming and my knees are answering so I need a heat soak.
